Dan (Dubber) was born and raised in San Bernardino, CA. His family provided a strong musical upbringing, but in 1992 they were torn from their roots when Dans father moved to the midwest to keep his job. Dan began to write and arrange his own music. Spending the last few years in and out of local recording studios, he completed his dream in august of 2001 with the release of his first full-length recording. Dan has spent several years playing regionally with some very talented local musicians and recording professionals. "It is the combination of contrasting guitars and heartfelt vocals that give this project it's rock edge," says Dan, who is the main creative force behind "State of Mindlessness." "But, I want people to listen to my music, so I don't go to extremes with my songwriting. My main goal is to reach someone. I want to make people move."
